Albany --  Production on Sherwood's new movie, Fireproof, has stopped because of tragedy. One of the photographers on the movie was killed. Thirty-one-year-old Robert Monk, known as Chip, was killed in Florida Sunday when his car crashed.  

He was headed back to Albany when his car blew two tires and he overturned. He later died at Shands Hospital in Gainesville.  

"There was a lot of tears and some of our pastors have already gone down to Orlando to minister to his wife and his family," says Stephen Kendrick, Associate Pastor. "A lot of the crew are going to attend the funeral this week. We've been grateful for the prayer support we've gotten from around the nation already."  

The producers postponed filming until after Thanksgiving.   Monk's wife, Sarah, is pregnant with their first child.
